I gotta Wii question.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Is the Blue light thingy on the drive bay for game disks supposed to stay on all the time on Wii's when they are on ?? Mine dosent stay on, and at the most, flashes for one second, when i insert a game disk. Have I got a bad Wii ? Gameplay isnt affected at all i think to the best of my knowledge.

i don't own one, but i believe it flashes when you have a message or when there are updates. i don't know about any other times, and i don't think it is supposed to stay on.

But on the box it is shown as being on while i know boxes arent representations, i would think that the light around the drive bay would light up atleast once ...

Unfortunately it's not on nearly as much as I'd like. Only when loading disks and when you have a message from WiiConnect24.

I think it blinks.

Your console isn't broken, the sweet looking blue light is just very underutilized.

the next thing you need to do is open the wii up, find the power wire for the light and put it on constant hot

nintendo won't mind if you do that haha

On the Overclock homepage, it said "I gotta Wii" and I was like "what?"

Just ignore the light, besides the fact that it looks cool.
